Holly McGetrick, owner of Dandy Boutique is creating a niche for herself in her vintage inspired shop in the area of Upper King.  Her love of making things with her hands kicked off her business of custom bridal headpieces and seasonal floral crowns 5 years ago.  Holly’s boutique filled with retro inspired clothing and accessories at affordable prices will makes it easy to shop local. She also regularly updates her blog with fun personal style posts and DIY projects like her current Fall Floral Crowns pictured here.  This little gem on John Street is one to check out!

Charleston Rice Beads, Reviving a Classic

06_lr 5 08_lr 6

You’ve probably seen many stylish ladies about town sporting the Charleston Rice Beads necklace and bracelets lately.  You can thank Deirdre Zahl of  Candy Shop Vintage for reviving this classic accessory from the 70′s and introducing it to a new generation.  This former New Yorker was enamored by the beauty and charm of Charleston, and wanted to bring back the Rice Beads and reinvent them in vibrant colors and finishes.  These fun necklaces can be worn in so many ways and pack a punch when layered.   Deirdre will be unveiling a new color tonight at the Pitt Street Stroll at Out Of Hand in the Old Village in Mt. Pleasant from 5-8pm, so swing by and scoop up a necklace, or two, or three.  View more for my Q&A with Deirdre Zahl, and how Charleston has inspired her creative endeavors.
